Attraction details
Owner description: Built in 1927, the Chateau was one of the most elaborate theatres built in Rochester in the early 1900s. The exterior sunburst design marquee is lit with 636 light bulbs. Its unique French Village decor includes interior balconies and turrets and, on the ceiling, stars in the night sky. Refurbished in 1994, this elegant old theatre now houses a Barnes and Noble Bookstore and Starbucks Cafe.

We were long-term lovers of the "old" Chateau Theater, which really did look like a chateau. Very quaint. And we loved its central "down town" location. But even after deserting the main scene, we still find the new Chateau our favorite of the now three movie houses in Rochester. It is the least expensive and very comfortable. And the drive back and forth from "old Southwest" takes only 15 minutes.

In my opinion, this is the best theater in town. They have now added reclining seats. At every screen I believe, too. When you go, it looks like an old time theater from outside, inside though, you have the modern things you expect at a movie theater.

The Chateau has inspired numerous quests to save it. It is really special to the people of Rochester and when you visit, you'll see why. There's something magical about it.
